Anything that you’ve done to further your education in the field is relevant. You can take live workshops or online training to gain educational credits. You may also read relevant books and articles.
For live or online training, you may submit your certificate of completion. If the course you took also counted as credits for another certification, such as AEA, you may tell us the provider number and number of credits if you don’t have the documentation.
For books or other self-study, you’ll be asked to provide a brief summary of what you’ve learned. It’s not extensive; just a quick recap.
Yes, but your renewal runs from the date of your last expiration. For example, let’s say you had either taken the original certification or renewed your certification January 10, 2020, which means your certification expires January 10, 2021. If you decide Sept 1, 2023 to renew, you must renew:
Jan 10, 2021 – Jan 10, 2022
Jan 10, 2022 – Jan 10, 2023
Jan 10, 2023 – Jan 10, 2024
This means you’ll need a quantity of 3 renewals and 30 hours of continuing education. Otherwise, it would be unfair to those who have stayed current.
